Morning Glory (2007) was composed in the summer. As an amateur gardener, I intersperse my composing time with small excursions into the back garden for daily weeding and watering. Often I’ve thought about melody as a winding vine, the twists and wrappings around a beat, the curves and contours of tunes. In this work, I was exploring the different soundworlds this particular ensemble can offer, while also exploring the various ways I could partner instruments in melodic relationships. I was particularly happy that the morning glories we planted entwined themselves with the ivy that covers the southern wall bordering my garden.
